Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\sqrt{\frac{ 27 }{ 12 }} \implies \left( \frac{ 27 }{ 12 } \right)^{1/2} = \frac{ 27^{1/2} }{ 12^{1/2} }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\implies \frac{ \sqrt{27} }{ \sqrt{12} } = \frac{ 3\sqrt{3} }{ 2\sqrt{3} }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first step is to note that \[\frac{27}{12}=\frac{9}{4}\] then take teh square root of the top and bottom separately

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Should get used to the exponent rules

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\sqrt{\frac{27}{12}}=\sqrt{\frac{9\times3}{4\times3}}=\sqrt{\frac{9}{4}}=\frac{\sqrt{9}}{\sqrt{4}}=\frac{3}{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1forget the fractional exponents, they do not help your cause at all reduce first, take the square root last

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, don't forget just know there's more then one way of doing it, and all you have to do is cancel out the sqrt(3)'s
